ICRA 2008 Workshops and Tutorials
Call for Proposals

*** Website open for submissions ***

The 2008 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation will be held 
in Pasadena, California, on May 19-23, 2008. We solicit tutorial and workshop 
proposals that address important and new topics related to the conference theme 
as well as robotics and automation in general. Workshops should focus on areas 
of active research, in order to provide an informal forum for participants to 
exchange developing research results and ideas. Tutorials should target 
established fields of research, in order to provide descriptions on its state 
of the art, by individuals who are recognized researchers of the field. All 
workshop/tutorial proposals will be reviewed by the ICRA 2008 Workshop/Tutorial 

We encourage proposals that will attract a broad audience from industry. The 
primary criteria for selection are anticipated level of interest, impact, 
novelty or creativity, and technical background of presenters.
